    Yes. Get the factory shop manual. It is available in CD-Rom, paperback, or downloadable file. It gives detailed removal and installation instructions for virtually every part of the car. All over eBay and Amazon.

    Yes, just pop the 4 plugs underneath the car, unbolt the nuts, pop the seat out. Don't unbolt anything else! Keep the tracks on the seats and if you're bringing them into to a shop just deliver the seat on the frame.

    I find it easier to fold the seat forward and remove/install in the "folded" position than upright.

    Oops. Took the tracks off figured it would be easier to upholster like that.

    should I put them back on before dropping them at the shop?

    They will need to be off for that. I would not put them back on at this time. Just point out to your upholsterer to not block the holes. They may already know that.
